London Quakers are here again, this time with a day at Friends House on Saturday 1 October about the banking system and how it could be so much better. Three first class speakers will lead us through some of the contentious, difficult, knotty, puzzling issues of how money does and doesn't work for people.
- David Shirreff, Economic Journalist and author of, "Don't start from here. We need a banking revolution" will lead a session on what banks do, why it isn't doing what is needed and what might be done about it.
Following the very successful 'Creating New Housing Stock' Workshop in February, London Quakers have organised a follow-on day to do more work on Community Land Trusts, and ways to generate housing with long term affordability. Apparently there is another legal mechanism, as well as the one the CLT uses. We're looking at this, plus other initiatives which will interest Quakers.
Detailed programme to follow, but put this in your diary now - judging by the level of interest in February, this one is going to be full.
